If your child is going to a camp where he will be spending a lot of time outdoors don't forget protective clothing such as wide-brimmed hats and a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or greater. We have too much sun here in Arizona!
The sunscreen below is a #1 product for babies and children in Europe. It contains both physical and chemical UV filters and perfect for delicate and sensitive skin.
Another outdoor danger is mosquito bites. Since a number of West Nile virus cases rapidly grows every year make sure your child has an efficient insect repellent with him.

2015 Summer Camps in Phoenix Area

Below you can find our directory of Kids Summer Camps in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Chandler, Tempe, Avondale, Gilbert, Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, and other towns in the Phoenix area. Check back often, since we will update it through the end of May.

Keep in mind that practically every day care or preschool has it's own summer camp. They usually sign up their regular students first and then if any spots left give them up to other kids.

All summer camps in our directory divided into five categories: Day Camps, Sport Camps, Music and Art, Educational, Overnight. Camps that fall into more than one category have their full description given only in the category where the camp appears first.
